According to Grove Music, this includes "a discussion of Ambrosian chant . . . Book 2, on notation, includes sections on poetic feet as related to musical rhythm and a survey of notation, beginning with Greek rhythmic symbols. The book on counterpoint is quite brief, laying stress on rules; unlike Tinctoris's treatise it addresses the composer more than the singer. Book 4, on proportions, seems intended to outdo Tinctoris, with proportions as abstruse as 19:4 illustrated in musical examples."
